The wackiness never ends

Before we get into today’s post first a correction as everyone knows we’re lining some very impressive guests for our upcoming podcasts. One group includes noted diabetes researcher Dr. Steven Edelman who also is the founder of TCOYD not TCYOD, it seems we got our O and Y mixed up so sorry about that. Now onto the latest round of wackiness…. 1. Would be nice to have something to sell. Yep it...

That Deadly Combination

Momma Kliff always said that if you wait long enough old becomes new again. Given what’s going on in our wacky world Mom was spot on. Here we are today with digital health hotter than a fire hydrant chasing a dog when all digital health is just disease management reinvented with new technology.

Do you believe in miracles?

Perhaps the most stunning miracle in sports came during the 1980 Winter Games in Lake Placid New York when a group of amateur Americans beat a group of basically professionals playing for the Soviet Union.

Yep you can’t swing that poor dead cat (and we think it’s about time we give this cat a name) without hitting another company hitting the capital markets to raise money. The latest being a start up called Movano who recently filed an S-1 as they intend to raise $36 million when they go...

Is something brewing?

Tomorrow afternoon Senseonics will report full year and fourth quarter results which frankly for us is pretty much a non-event.

An overflowing toy chest

With Michigan ranked #2, my Fighting Illini #4, Iowa #5, Ohio State #7 the Big Ten (which actually has way more than 10 members) occupies 4 out of the top ten spots in the latest AP poll. But why stop there as Purdue comes in at #23 and Wisconsin rounds out the top 25 coming in at #25. Needless to say this is an abundance of riches for the conference...
